SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo: Hiring the Right Employees

Help wanted!

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, there are 11.4 million job openings in the U.S.—but only 6 million unemployed workers thanks to the exodus of 2.8 million people from the workforce since February 2020.

Despite the current labor shortage, it’s still important that you bring on employees who will be able to help your sign or graphics shop excel at fulfilling projects.

Presented by Stephanie Poyant, director of Sales Operations at Poyant Signs, and Kyle Furtado, production supervisor at Poyant Signs, the info-packed session, Hiring the Right Employees, will answer questions like:

  • What are the advantages of hiring based either on experience or potential, and which works better for you?
  • What traits should you keep in mind when hiring?
  • How can you get more proactive in getting the word out about potential careers at your company?

If you’re looking for advice on how and who to hire, this is the session for you! Register today!


SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo

The SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo will be held on September 19-21, 2022 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

The conference program will feature two days of sessions that offer actionable “how-to” lessons to sign shops of all sizes and levels of experience. With a focus on how sign shops can increase sales and profits through strong business management and operational efficiency, this conference will arm you with all the tools you’ll need to become a better business owner.

Of course, no sign shop is complete without the right equipment and services, and there will be a large show hall filled with exhibitors from across the sign industry, hands-on product demonstrations, and valuable networking opportunities.

The day-to-day challenges of operating a sign shop along with larger issues like labor shortages and supply chain disruptions, can make it nearly impossible to step back and evaluate your sign shop’s current operations and future plans. Join us in Providence this fall and make the time to work on all the aspects of your business that will result in increased profits, a stronger team, and a clear path forward.
